Volunteers from Landmarc Support Services have helped to construct a new French boules course by Eric’s Croft for East Haven residents.

Working with the support of East Haven Together, and local contractor DJ Laing, Landmarc staff shifted more than nine tonnes of gravel to create the Petanque course.

The project was the brainchild of Landmarc employee and East Haven resident, Nicola Lyall, who explained: “We have a scheme running at work called ‘Be the Difference’ which enables employees to volunteer some of their time during work hours to help put something back into the communities that we work in.

“It was great fun working on the project and helping to provide a facility that will give local residents and visitors to the area the chance for a game or two in the Scottish sun and the opportunity to get to know people in their local community a little better.”

Wendy Murray, Lead Trustee of East Haven Together added: “Residents have aspired to having their own community petanque course for a number of years and we were delighted that Landmarc stepped in to help make this ambition a reality. We are very grateful to Landmarc and DJ Laing.”
